The winning team of Caeleste’s 2018 Foosball Competition

In general, “foosball” (table football) is mainly a sport that people play for fun in a smoky bar, but we play it at the office!

The game still doesn’t even have a single set of rules – or one name. You’ve got langirt in Turkey, sjotterkas in Belgium,  jouer au baby-foot in France, csocso in Hungary, cadureguel-schulchan in Israel, plain old table football in the UK, and a world encyclopedia of ridiculous names elsewhere around the globe. The American “foosball” (where a player is called a “fooser”) borrowed its name from the German  “fußball” (Read more: “The murky history of Foosball”)

Congratulations to our ‘foosers’ who won the 2018 Caeleste Foosball Competition!

Caeleste at the ITE 2017 in Yokohama, Japan


Caeleste participated in the show of the International Technical Exhibition on Image Technology and Equipment 2017. This show was held in Yokohama Pacifico Hall from 6 till 8 December 2017.

Caeleste showcased some of its realizations, demonstrated its design, assembly, test and production capabilities in the field of particle detection, X-Ray, UV, visible and IR imaging.

Caeleste is making linear arrays for scanning imaging and spectroscopic applications as well as area arrays. The size of the image sensors can vary from some mm2 over several cm2 to wafer scale devices.

Caeleste is specialized in low-noise, high frame rate image sensors with High Dynamic Range (HDR) pixels and with analog or digital outputs.

It was a great pleasure for Jan Vermeiren, Business Development Manager, Eiji Watanabe, Account Manager for USA and Japan and Shigemichi ‘Mike’ Kato, Sales Manager Japan, to welcome so many visitors at our booth.
